Abstract

This study provided three strategies for teachers to help students build up a sense of cultural appropriation: pictures, YouTube video clips, and group discussions. Each strategy aroused students’ different degree of cultural stimulation. With an in-class experimental teaching method and action research in Beijing Institute of Technology, Zhuhai (BITZH) in Guangdong Province, China, the study has found effective teaching methods for creating a vivid classroom atmosphere, building bidirectional student-centered conversations, and developing students’ cultural appropriation. The result from this study revealed the advantages of combining and interweaving internet usage while teaching students cultural appropriation.
